Beloved Saint Mary's! How great is our debt! 

Thou hast, eared for thy daughters full well; 

They can never thy happy instructions forget. 

Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 

The love thai I hey feel is a heritage pure; 

An experience wholesome and sweet. 

Through fast rolling years it will grow and endure 

Be a lamp and a guide to their feet. 

May the future unite all the good of the past 
With the best that new knowledge can bring. 
Ever onward and upward thy course 1 to the last 
Be thou steadfast in every good thing. 
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still 
Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove 
And carry thy teaching o'er woodland and lull 
Of earnestness, wisdom ami love.

v\/ We've long .since gone, 
And as taught by thee, our cross 
We've gladly borne, 
We'll not forget the joys 
That in thee we've known, 
Nor how in thy protecting arms 
Our hearts toward God have grown. 
But as mortals blind we stumble 
In a world as dark as night 
We'll look to you — Grueling star, 
Alma Mater — Saving light ! 

Eleanor F. Yakeokough. 




Aihi/ilnl from Margaret Mason Young, 1890 

IN a grove of stately oak trees, 
Where the sunlight lies, 
Stands Saint Mary's true and noble 
'Neath the Southern skies. 

Far and wide, oh sound her praises, 

Chorus full and free, 
Hail, Saint Mary's, Alma Mater, 

Hail all hail to thee! 

Wei] we love the little chapel, 

Ever hold it dear; 
Hear the echoes of the nmsie, 

Rising soft and clear. 

Far and wide, etc. 

There the ivy and the roses 
Climb the old stone wall, 

There the sweet, enticing bird notes 
Sound their magic call. 

Far and wide, etc. 


A View of Saint Mary's in Bygone Daye 

& £>fjort ^igtorp of &t jUarp's; 

OX MAY 12 of 1842, St. Mary's School was opened, being founded by the 
Reverend Aldert Smedes, D.I). This day is still remembered and celebrated 
as the birthday of our beloved Alma Mater. 

In 1S32, influential churcl n, carrying out a plan proposed by Bishop Ives, 

purchased the present "grove of oaks." as a part of a tract of one hundred and 

sixty acres to be used in establishing a Churcb Scl I for hoys. East Rock 

building was first built which was followed soon by West Rock Building and 
Smedes Hall, all being built for use in the boys' school. This promising school 
was not destined to be successful and so was closed, and the property passed back 
into private hands. 

Bishop Ives was influential in getting 1 >r. Smedes to leave a successful girls' 
school in New York City, and come to Raleigh to establish St. Mary's, which he 
did in May 1N42. From the first the school was a success and Dr. Smedes remained 
with the school until his death. St. Mary's daughters are proud of the tradition 
that during the war between the States, her doors were open for the refugees 
driven from their homes and that at one time the family of the beloved President 
of the Confederacy was sheltered within her walls. 


When Dr. Smedes died on April 25, 1877 St. Mary's was left to the care of 
his son, Rev. Dr. Bennett Smedes, who had been a teacher in the school during 
his father's lifetime. For twenty-two years Dr. Bennett Smedes carried on his 
father's work, sparing neither expense nor pains. During this time, St. Mary's 
was a private Church School. 

In 1899, Dr. Smedes was succeeded hy Dr. Bratton. Rev. McNeely Du Bose 
succeeded Dr. Bratton in September, 1903, and he, in turn, was succeeded by 
Rev. George W. Lay in July, 1907. In 1918 Rev. Warren W. Way, the present 
Rector, came to St. Mary's. 

Under the Rev. Aldert Smedes, St. Mary's was a high class school for the general 
education of girls, and the pupils finished without "graduating." In 1879 under 
Dr. Bennett Smedes the courses were established and in July of the same year 
the first class was regularly graduated. 

Year by year, funds were raised and the present beautiful buildings were built 
and added to the three original ones. 

The attendance of St. Mary's is steadily increasing, having an enrollment of 
two hundred and seventy-five girls for this session. The boarding accommodations 
are limited at present to about two hundred, which, however, still makes St. 
Mary's the largest Episcopal resident school for girls in this country.

Saint Mary's School. Opening 
He has gone to his reward ; but 

The Rev. Bennett Smedes, D.D., been me the second rector of Saint Mary's in 1K77. Here he 
remained for 1wt.Mil>' years, "the bead of Ins household, a companion of infinite tenderness, sympathy 
and understanding, a man to lean upon, to look up to, to thank God for." 

The Rt. Rev. Theodore DuBose Bratton, D.D., was rector of Saint Mary's from 1899 to 1903. Saint 
Mary's went forward rapidly under his administration, the Rectory, Senior Hall and the Piano Practice 
Rooms being I mill and the College Department established. He was "really loved by faculty and 
students. In 1903 he left Saint Mary's to accept the call to the Bishopric of Mississippi. 

The Rev. McNeely DuBose. D.D., rector of Saint Mary's from 1903 to 1907. i.s especially remembered 
for his great interest in the chapel which, during his rectorship was completely renovated and enlarged 
by the addition of Ibe transepts. 

The Rev. George William Lay, D.C.L., was here from 1007 to 1918. "He inculcated ft respect 

for discipline and promptness. In bis personal attitude towards pupils and parents ami in his 

attitude towards the standards of education, patrons of the school and others have recognized and 
appreciated his sincerity of purpose, bis honesty of statement anil aim." 



The original of the "Stage Coach Picture," so often used in The Muse to contrast the old days with 
the later ones, was a drawing hy Mrs. O-ustave Blessner. Mr. Blessner, Musical Director at Saint 
Mary's in the '40's, had it lithographed for use on the cover of. some which he composed and 
had published in 1845, On the title pap;e, in addition to the State Coach Picture, was printed: "Tin- 
Flower of the South: A Collection of Characteristic Waltzes, Composed for the Piano and Dedicated 
to the Young Ladies of Saint Mary's School, Raleigh, N. C, hy Gustave Blessner."

We can't imagine St. Mary's without our dear "Miss Katie." She has been here since 1867, when 
she entered as a pupil. From a pupil she became a teacher and taught until 1919. "Miss Katie" is 
devoted in her service to the church and school, and is greatly loved by all St. Mary's girls.

When Miss Katie was a teeny little girl —

r i m ' HERE'S a place for us in the chapel grey 
\^ .Where the tall white candles flame, 
There we have felt the presence of God 
And breathed with love His name; 
We have a place in the long wide hall 
Where the old clock ticks away 
The hours that hold our youthful tears 
And the hours that are bright and gay; 
There's a place, for us in every nook, 
'Neath every tree in the grove, 
Each stone to us is a memory star 
Of friendships dear — and love; 
The all of you — O home of love 
Has held us through the days 
And in our hearts there's a place for you — 
Alma Mater and friend — always!

To see Katherine in class one would think she never had aught 
but an (ir.derly and studious thought in her life, but outside 
she js a rare good sport, amenable to anything suggested. For 
all of us Katherine always has ir cheery smile, and whenever 
anyone needs any help on her work she is always ready and 
willing to give. it. Although she is a day student she has always 
been for Saint Mary's, interested in every undertaking. We all 
wish Katherine the best of luck, and are sure with her fine 
qualities of mind and heart she will reach the high goal she has 
set for herself. Katlierine is a conscientious student and though 
the path may be hard she will trudge on in her persistent war.

No matter how much confusion — no matter how many heads

some ingenious way to fix things up again. 

There are no two sides to Helen Bryan. She's the same

In those off; minutes when our youthful hearts are inclined

she reads the Minutes at the E. A. P. Meetings. 

Annie thoroughly enjoys life and we believe it's because she

'■'Her very frowns are fairer far 
Than smiles of other maidens are." 

Katherine not only is an important personage as "Senior Pres- 
ident" but she is vitally important because she holds such a big 
place in our hearts. She is such ar very little girl but we find 
so many big things to love her for. Katherine not only suc- 
ceeds in everything she attempts to do but her success is im- 
mense. She has steered the "Senior Ship" through the turbulou.s 
waters with a firm yet loving hand, and she has been an inspir- 
ation to every member of the Class of '24. 

Long after our school days at Saint Mary's are over we will 
remember Katherine- as- a" true and faithful friend, one whom 
we are better for having known. Because Katherine has not 
only won her place in "Statistics" as the "Best follower" but 
she has danced her way into our hearts and she's there to stay. 



Willi a sure step and a loyal heart -she perforins her daily 
duties. She doesn't mind working and puts her whole heart into 
whatever site does. That, perhaps, accounts for her serenity of 
expression whifih stands out in sharp contrast witli the discon- 
tented and uneasy expressions of the average mortal. 

In Iho chapel, where true worth is recognized, her influence 
is felt. She is earnest in her endeavor to do her part in the 
work of the Guild., 

Though she is the supplement of Annie Willis she, in hersolf, 
is 180 degrees of true schoolgirl wholesomeness, Senior Hall 
couldn't get along without her sly little sayings and keen interest 
in everybody's hurts. 

She's the- friend of everybody and everybody likes her. She's

When Julia first came to Saint Mary's just two years ago, she 
wore dresses to her knees and long flowing hair and therefore 
won the.: name of "Mary Piekford." Now she is a grown young 
lady of great beauty and charm. The charm has been almost 
as instantaneous as the six -months bloom of "Cosetfe." Her 
dignity is truly senior-like and she displays it weekly 
erect ness and solemnity in carrying the cross. We've seen her 
tho' when she behaved otherwise — just ask the Sophomores what 
they think of her as leading lady of a crowd of "chorus girls." 
We' all agree that .lulia is dramatically inclined, and remember, 
bow she revealed that talent as "Holner" in "Why tho Chimes 
Rang.", She made a beautiful little Russian boy, and the truth 
fill self -sacrificing role she played, suited her well. Julia is a 
very good student, tho Sir. Stone accuses her of never thinking 
and ever guessing. We don't agree with Mr. Stone, but if lie is

"A prodigy of learning" 

Virginia will never be sued for "Breach of Promise" or 
"'Neglect" because she's so absolutely trustworthy and conscien- 
tious. She does what she says she'll do come what may, And 
when she's told to "glean love" from big formidable looking books 
the very sight of which frightens the weaker ones she not only 
satisfies the curiosity of the prying instructor on the subject but 
she satisfies her own intellectual curiosity of which she possesses 
much. We all wonder how one little bob-haired head can carry 
so many accurate details. 

Virginia is one of the most optimistic members of our class. 
No matter how heavy the load, no matter how rough the road, 
she never grumbles and groans. She is always ready to do her 
share of the work with abounding good will and she's so good 
uatured that she'll gladly do all of the work if we'd let her. 

She has a keen ear, we know, because when the olives are 
opend and the nuts are cracked she's right there with a ready 
laugh and an eager eye! 

Virginia is a girl of lofty ideals and she never falls beside 
the way. She may be quiet and unassuming but she gets there 
just the samel

"Not too serious, not too (jay. 
But a rare good fellow when it comes to play." 

If you've got the blues, just listen to Mary laugh I She litis 
such a contagious laugh that you'll he laughing too in a minute. 
But if you should catch her on one of those rare occasions when 
she isn't laughing she'll lend you such a sympathetic ear that 
jour blues will be dispersed, anyway. 

As President of the Student Body she has proven herself 
worthy. Besides always standing for the right herself she has 
helped many others apt to' go astray to tread the "strait and 
narrow." That's just why she got it for the "Most Influential." 

But don't ever think that Mary spends all of her time seeking 
"lost lambs," because she doesn't. .She's our "Best-All-Around." 
She plays basket-hall zealously, and the Sigmas would feel ab- 
solutely "crippled" without her. She not only "goes out" for all 
athletics But she excels in every one. And she's just as musical 
as she's athletic! 

You'd never suspect that one .so full o' fun conld be serious, 
bill, you couldn't find a more conscientious student. 

Ask her numerous "crushes" bow sweet and kind she is. 
They'll vouch for her every time. Just ask anybody about her 
and they'll tell you that she's a girl who'll "take what Fate or 
the Gods may give" — and smile 1 

Saint Marys SehooT 

'A smile for all, a greeting glad, 
An amiable, jolly way she had." 

Those wild do not know Josephine may think she is quiet and 
dignified but we who know her, know thai after work is over 
she is always ready for fun. Being a good "stude" her motto 
is "work while you work and play" while you play." . Josephine 
came to Saint Mary's last year and entered whole-heaxtei 
school life. She is a true and faithful friend Her one aim in 
life is to he Alma Glulclt, .lr., and we feel that in the near future 
her aim will he realized. Then we will all rise, and in thorns 
shout her praises to the skj\ and he prouder than ever to 
her as a loyal memher of the class of ''24. 

"A tender heart, a will inflexible" 

Clave never lets a minute .slip by without first cramming i 

full nf accomplishment or serious thought, at least. She's hot I 
earnest and wise, and the "rainy day" will not c atoll 
"unawares 1~ 

.She isn't a stern little person however, nor is she a butterfly. 
She's just the "happy medium," She's just her own sweet self. 
You couldn't find a more successful combination of sadness and 
gladness — and it's a bis old world I 

"With eare and diligence, she follows the "footprints in 
sands of time" — always looking forward. As "('lass Histor 
she should review her own career at St. Mary's with pride 
self-satisfaction. But, of course, Clare is far too modest am 
unselfish to even think about such a thing. She is always think 
ing about other people and wondering how she can make some 
body happy. Perhaps one could find an example of her tlionghl 
fulness and generosity on a certain floor in Bast Wing. Wh( 
knows ? 

She's a. staunch supporter of the Mu's and the standards o 
St. Mary's. Her work on the annual cannot be value 

Just look into her frank, grey eyes, and you'll see 
tion of her constant heart and lovable self.

Who is that one, "divinely tall and most divinely fiiir," tripping 
the light fantastic toe "a la ville?" That's Eugenia, but her 
regal loveliness is only one tread in, the vari-colored fabric that 
is she. 

When you see her presiding over the E. A. P. Literary Society 
you think that she is- the' .model "woman of affairs," and, in 
truth, she is. She goes about her business with a calm thor- 
oughness, never discouraged, never discouraging. 

And yet, if you'd peep behind the scenes you'd glimpse just 
an adorable playmate. Hpr brown eyes are laughing, and she 
seems to _be the very essence of a holiday world. 

Her smile is not. only for her "crushes," and friends, both of 
which she has a multitude. She smiles on the whole world, and 
the whole world smiles back. She's irresistible I

don't need three guesses to tell who's coming when Mil-

that nobody else shuffles along with such happy steps, and she's 
always singing. If she ever allows anything to make her un- 
happy, none of ns have been talented enough along the "Sherlock 
Holmes line" to discover it. And that is just one of her happy 
traits. We could not wish for a truer friend. We feel that Mildred 
is a girl we could trust through thick and thin. Mildred is happy- 
go-lucky but she can be very serious when the time comes and 
when she speaks there is sound und just judgment behind her 
words. The minute you meet Mildred you love her, just because 
it's the only natural thing to do. She's absolutely adorable. It 
would take a master hand to paint her as we know her, with

"She's true to her word, her work, and her friends." 

When you first meet Anna Boyd you might form the opinion 
that She's rather reserved and just a little later you might think 
that "Still water runs deep," but if you were a Senior of the 
class of '24 you'd know that looks are deceiving and that Anna 
Boyd is a forceful member of that "Trio'' who have a regular 
picnic every night after lights, which is always blamed on some 
imaginary ghost or worse still, one of the dread "Hamlin Town" 
pests whi.ii are always such a nightmare lo young maidens. 
We've always heard rumors that Kentucky produces "Beautiful 
Women," but we weren't thoroughly convinced until she sent 
us Anna Boyd, as positive proof, and now there's not a shadow 
of doubt. Then the curtain goes up again and enter Anna Boyd 
the student. When she dons those shelled rimmed glasses, there 
just naturally doesn't seem to be a thing she doesn't know. She's 
the pride of History N, so with that lucky combination of beauty 
and brains we prophesy for Anna Boyd the rosiest of futures.

"The deep violets of the pansy you liken to the 
kindest eyes that look on you, 
Without a thought disloyal." 1 

In her presence you feel that you have been carried quickly 
back to the time when fairies lived, and danced all the duy. 
Eleanor, with her little head of curls and the smiling eyes, that 
are tender, and yet dancing with the pure joy of living and 
making others happy, lint suddenly she dashes off some place, 
with all the pep of the modern maid and leaving you to decide 
which of her moods you prefer — an endless task. When winter 
comes and all the flowers are gone, suddenly a last little violet 
springs up to make every one happy. Eleanor's like that with her 
surprising little "words" an' "ways." Eleanor is not only star 
guard of the "Mu" Team but she presides with grace and dignity 
over Sigma Lambda Society Meetings. If you've ever been 
happy enough to be one of the few who have read her bits of 
verse then you have bad a rare pleasure. So, Eleanor the 
''Maid of Moods" is one, also, of a great many accomplishments.

A Song of Graduation Day 
(After "Good-bye, Girls" from "Chin Chin") 

We're the happiest girls in all the realm of schoolrlom, 

We feel as though we'd triumphed over fate. 
We've reached a goal we've ever sought, 

A day of which we've ever thought, 
That wondrous day on which we graduate. 

Of course we've not had only sun and flowers. 
But storms and clouds have braced us in the line. 

Like every other girl we've wasted hours, 
But now all's done — the future looks benign. 

And yet we say with heartfelt sigh 

For the happy days of the years gone by — 

Good-bye, school, we're through, 

Dear school where we have met, 

We say good bye to you 

With very real regret. 

Our day of jubilation 

Is full of fascination. 

But we'll e're to you be true. 

Good-bye, school, 

Good-bye, school, we're through. 

We've often read in poems and romances 

That some day in some way, if we but wait, 
The thing we seek both far and wide — 

The thing for which we've ever sighed- — 

Will come to us — 'tis so deemed by fate. 
And so it's all come true as in a story, 

Commencement morning with its golden sun, 
Has risen upon our sight in all its glory. 

For us there'll never be such other one 

And yet we say with heartfelt sigh, 

For the happy days of years gone by; 

Good-bye, school, we're through, etc.

&he ^isitorp of Cfje Class of '24 

IT had been twenty years since that beautiful May day. when the girls, with smil- 
ing faces but sad hearts, gathered in the grove of stately oak trees, for the last 
time; and now the stillness all around, the rain pattering against the windows 
seemed to carry the little lady with the silvered hair back to those Senior hall days. 
The fire even fell in with her reminiscent mood and appeared to echo the tunes of 
"Barney Bananas." She had forgotten the two little girls who were on the rug in 
front of her and was startled when she realized that questions were being directed to her 

"Mother, why did they wear such funny dresses when you went to school?" 

"And they fixed their hair so funny too." 

"Do tell us all about it!" 

"And here is a girl with a dark dress when all the others wear white ones." 

"Mother, please, please, tell us about it." 

"Why hasn't this book a leather cover like the others?" 

And then their mother saw that they w r ere surrounded by seven "Muses." Woulc" 
they be interested in that long story which has so overwhelmed her — those days the 
very thought of which made her forget everything — were her little girls making fun 
of her friends — but then she remembered when she had searched through similar books 
for original ideas she, too, had laughed. So she smiled and began her story: 

"Darlings, it was in 1A17, during the war, when I first went to Saint Mary's, and 
money was spent for war savings stamps instead of candies and other things, and, Jane, 
dear, that is why this book is minus the leather cover. I was a little girl when I en- 
tered the seventh grade. Miss Robins was my teacher and Miss "Gyp" was the dormi- 
tory mother. Miss Gyp was an angel, and every night while the big girls came from 
study hall — " 

"But didn't you have to go to study hall too, mother?" 

"Yes, but just from eight until nine and the big girls stayed until nine-thirty. Then 
Miss Gyp tucked us in bed and kissed us good night and left us to dream of the most 
wonderful lady, with kind, brown eyes and black curls, whom we idolized — instead of 
crying for mother. 

The next year Dr. Lay was no longer at Saint Mary's, and although we missed his 
friendship and kindly interest in individuals we loved our new rector. His smile went 
straight to the heart of every girl, and I often heard — 

"Mr. Way is my idea of an angel on earth." 

"Mother, what are these things marked with 4-2 — 1; and 4-2 = 3, when it doesn't?" 

"Why that was our costume for the school party. We had been babies so long with 
our socks and ribbons that our president, Laura Hawkins, decided the preps should 
be original — so 

Preps spech. Bus 
Was so small G wiz 
We represent zero. 

"Mary Powell entered in 1919, the second oldest member of our class, and she proved 
to be a shining light." 

"Mother, was she president?" 

"No. she wasn't president, but Peggy Edmerson was, and she led the preps in every- 
thing as well as she led the Mu's cheer: 
Hit 'em high, 
Hit 'em low, 
Mu team. 
Let's go. 

"The next year we were Freshmen and Tilly Lamb was our president and Mr. Cruik- 
shank was not only our adviser, but the friend of every Freshman. Every Saint Mary's 
girl, that knew him. loved him and holds his memory as one of the dearest treasures 
in her heart. With such leaders to guide us, how could we forget our motto, 'Ever 
onward, and ever upward.' There were just two of us who boarded the train to gradu- 
ation that year — but Mildred and Anna Boyd were preps and Eugenia was a Sophomore. 

"As Sophomores — we were wise Sophomores and fortunate Sophomores too — because 
that was the year Miss Morgan and Miss Turner came to Saint Mary's and who could 
deny that the heart of every one was made better and richer for their friendship and 
guardianship? They set noble ideals before us, ideals that now I can more fully ap- 
preciate. Lucy Lay set an excellent example of dignity for the hilarious frolicers that 
Sophomores are usually considered — she worked for us, as well as with us. The climax 


of that year was the 'fancy dress ball' given for the Seniors with a real 'down town' 
orchestra. It was wonderful — and we thought, the only one of its kind in the history 
of Saint Mary's. 

"Junior privileges! Our most cherished dream had been realized at last — going down 
town twice a week, studying in our rooms — with other extra things — besides serving at 
parties and doing what some called 'the dirty work.' We didn't consider it that with 
ice cream hidden away in the refrigerators, and Katharine's smiling face always see- 
ing the good, and clearing up the dark places. Katherine Fisher had the sweetest smile, 
ever seeking to make somebody else happy. Working for the Christmas tree and parties 
was just play, when a smile always greeted us. 

"At the banquet when Mr. Tucker stated, 'This is the best Junior and Senior Banquet 
we have ever had," our hearts swjled with pride. But, as the year passed, and we 
realized we were to take the places that the Seniors had tilled so well, our hearts failed 
us- We didn't see how Saint Mary's could ever do without them, but in the midst of 
that feeling of distress a big question mark stood out because 

When Mr. Stone, as we were told, 
Heard there were thirty-four enrolled 
The sixties came both right and left — 
No one considered how we felt. 

And no more in our seats did we slumber, 
But to the study hall went that frightened number. 
Yet, "Mr. Billy." he was a friend in the past 
We loved him always from the first to the last. 

"It was a happy bunch that welcomed the new girls in September, 1923— happy because 
we were seeing each other again and because we had reached the year of all years. 
Seniors! Were we ever worthy of attaining such eminence? Did we ever put on the 
required dignity and really feel the real responsibility of the Student Council, and of 
chaperoning, teaching Sunday school, and keeping study hall? There were twenty- 
three of us — I shall never forget those Sunday nights at Mr. Way's where we all 
gathered around the fire, which was the only light, and popped pop-corn and told ghost 

"What should we have done without Miss Davis in the Christmas plays? Julia 
Maurice as Hogler in 'Why the Chimes Rang' and Helen Bryan as Jean D'Arc were 
an honor to us. Then the Christmas tree! And getting up at three in the' morning 
to serenade! They were happy days. 

"Alternate Sunday nights, there were the Auxiliary Chapter meetings when everybody 
assembled in the parlor and sometimes Miss Katie talked to us, telling us in words, as 
well as by her example, how to be true Saint Mary's girls. Then the Mu and Sigma 
games at which everybody was always bubbling over with pep. and showing true spirit. 
We had literary society meetings too, model meetings, and the debate, Eleanor and 
Eugenia presiding with so much dignity that others envied their calm attitudes. Nor 
must one forget how we worked in the little stores and teas for both 'Muses' with the 
spirit to make them the best of the best. 

"Possibly we felt our Senior duties most at spring holidays, for we Seniors had an 
extra day. Then May came as a fairy on shining wings leaving wondrous dreams. 
The Junior and Senior banquet with the toasts and speeches by Catherine Menzies and 
Katherine Fisher made us feel we were the most fortunate girls in the world to have 
them for our leaders. 

"Then at Commencement, when we gave our places to others that would go on, weren't 
we more than a wee bit sad — " 

Mary and Jane had long since fallen asleep and the fire had burned down, leaving 
but a spot of red. Yet the air was still heavy with memories. And the old Saint Mary's 
girl softly hummed the melody — 

In a grove of stately oak trees. 
Where the sunlight lies. 
Stands Saint Mary's true and noble, 
'Neath the Southern skies.

HS I look back now. I can't remember a thing we had for dinner that night, 'cept 
fish — oh yes, an' I remember we did have some delicious beans an' I did eat a 
great many; but I still can't understand why I should have had such an exciting 
dream. All I remember is that I seemed to be dreadfully puzzled over something. My 
head fairly ached I was puzzled so. but just about then the funniest little brown "elf" 
hopped up an' said to me, "You seem to be worried, can I help you any?" I was quite 
dismayed at seeing such a queer little figure but he had kindly eyes; so 1 took courage, 
"Oh, I am terribly worried! I have this dreadful task to perform in a week. I have 
to prophesy what is to happen to 22 Seniors, an' I've gazed and gazed into the future 
and each time I see them .just as they are and it's all a blank to me. What shall I do?" 
The little "elf" winked his eye at me in a kindly fashion. "Why, easy enough, that hap 
pens to be my specialty. You see, I'm called "Imagination." Whom are you most 
worried about?" "Oh, Annie Davenport, because every night she takes the most violent 
exercise and we're all worried about her." The little "elf" shook his head sadly. "Poor 
girl, her future will be terribly sad. She will keep on reducing until she is a human 
feather. The poor thing will never he able to go out when the wind is blowing for 
fear of being picked up by the breeze. And she will never be able to go out without 
two companions, one on either side, to support her." I was quite touched at this sari 
story and the tears trickled down my cheeks. "Are you sure she will always have two 
faithful companions?" "Yes, Mattie King Hancock and Anna Boyd Wilson will devote 
their lives to her care as they encouraged her in this fatal work. Another rather sad 
story is Mildred Waddell's. Poor girl, she tried so hard to make all the Seniors satisfied 
with their Senior pictures, even having them taken over two or three times, that it 
will cause her to go crazy on the subject and she'll spend her days running around with 
a kodak taking pictures. Her slogan will be, 'Guaranteed to flatter.' 

"Virginia Person will always live a secluded life, surrounded by her books, her two 
favorites especially 'Dummelow's Commentary' and 'The Advance of the English Novel.' 
But even after she has spent her entire life in concentrated study her favorite remark 
will be, 'I declare, I don't know one thing, not one thing.' But Helen Bryan Chamber- 
lain, who will be living with Virginia, will assure her that if she just keeps at it long 
enough she may get a little light on the subject. 

"Margaret Bell, Frances Smith and Julia Maurice will finally dance themselves to the 
front row of a large chorus. They will be held back for a few years on account of their 
voices, which are a little off. When interviewed they will say that they first felt the 
call of the stage when they were chorus girls in a vaudeville at Saint Mary's and their 
friends urged them to devote their lives to the stage. 

"Clare Spence will become an authoress but her one book, 'My Life-long Opinion that 
Crushes Are Useless and Unnecessary in a School Girl's Life,' will receive such hot 
protest from girls' schools that she won't have the courage to write any more." 

"Oh, please tell me what is ever to become of Eleanor Yarborough." The little "elf" 
laughed gaily, "well, she's so mysterious I can't tell you much. But you know how she 
haunts 'Fallon's.' Well, she will devote her life to raising big, red roses, and all the day 
she'll sit out among them penning tender little lines to some mysterious person. 

' Emma Lawrence and Anna Willis will spend their lives as joint teachers of English N 
at Saint Mary's. They will still use 'Cross, Moody & Lovetf and 'Phelps' as the favorite 
references. Mary Powell will teach 'Gym.' at Saint Mary's, while 'Tabby' will win 
fame by writing a song entitled, 'The Sea-going Blues'." 


"But, little elf, aren't any of the 22 ever going to marry? Goodness! none of us are 
man-haters, now. by any means." The little elf sadly shook his head. "No, only one of 
you will he lucky enough to capture a man. and she's Amy Meade. Confidentially, she 
proposed to him during Leap Year. Dot Graher will do the same thing but she will 
speak too late and will spend the rest of her days as a lecturer on 'The Early Bird Gets 
the Worm.' 

"Katherine Fisher will conduct a Bureau of Information for lovelorn lassies as she 
is the best authority on the management of such affairs. 

"Josephine Rowland, Blanche Bonner and Catherine Bretsch will make good use of 
their study of Economics and enter the business world. Blanche will run a tea room 
for 'State boys." 

"And you, poor girl," he said addressing me, "You will get fatter and fatter until at 
last you will spend your days in a side show as 'The Fat Lady'." Then quickly the 
little elf vanished, leaving me overcome. It is true I have always had aspirations along 
such lines but never to such a remarkable extent. Oh, I could never endure sitting in 
a little box all day answering the questions of the on-lookers. "No. my friends, I have 
not always been this large. What did I eat? Oh, beans, beans, beans! I've never lost 
my desire for beans which I acquired at Saint Mary's. What kind of beans? Oh, every 
kind, baked beans, lima beans, butter beans, string beans * * *" Just then some one 
shook me and 1 awoke with a start and heard Katherine saying, "Why in the world are 
you making a stump speech? You have only six minutes to get to breakfast." All 
thoughts of any one's future left me at once. My one' vital interest was in my own 
future and that was to get through those dining room doors!

"Move a second, I can't see-—" 

Then many a mournful wail. 
The hall is crowded full — 

There is a deafening roar, 
When suddenly a silence falls, 

As "she" comes in the door. 

Sometimes you're far in dreamland 

When — Is that the bell ? It cannot be. 
You must grab your clothes and hurry up 

Or "her" you'll go to see. 
You'll trot upstairs at 7 :20 

And knock upon her door. 
"She'll" just look out a minute 

With a, "Please be late no more." 

On Friday nights ''she's" nowhere seen, 

We often wonder why — 
The fish we have is very good, 

E'en tho we don't have pie. 
What's that youj say, who is this "she" 1 

My goodness, haven't you guessed ? 
Well, I'll not tell you just the same — 

It's a good "Intelligence Test."

*w-"VORD, h.ab mercy upon us and deliver us from de fury oh de Yankees, Amen." 
JL-i, "Mammy, oh. Mammy! Come here quick! The hahy's got the croup," called a 

"Yes. Missis, I'se a coming." The old colored woman scramhled from her knees and 
hurried into the next room. 

"Oh, Mammy, my haby's got the croup. What must I do? Don't let him die." A 
sweet looking woman, of about thirty, turned from the crib over which she had been 
bending and cast an agonized look at the old colored woman. 

"Don't you worry, honey, I'll hab my boy feelin' just as fine as a fiddle in no time." 
She worked hard over the child for about an hour and then put him back in his crib. 

"Now you go to bed. Miss Nellie, I'se a gwine to sit by dis boy for a little spell. I'se 
mighty much s'prised at dis big boy habing de croup. It's sure a sign something is 
gwine happen. Do you remember — neber mind. Go on to sleep." 

The old colored woman had started to speak of the death of the child's father. Nor- 
folk in 1S57 had been seized with an epidemic of yellow fever. Mr. John Carter had 
sent his wife and two little girls to his old home on the James River, while he stayed 
to help nurse the sick. The ever faithful Mammy Joe had accompanied them. Two 
weeks after their arrival little John had been born. When three weeks old he had a 
dreadful attack of the croup and the next day news of his father's death reached the 
plantation. Mr. Carter died without ever seeing his son. 

Mrs. Carter and her three little children had never gone back to Norfolk. Life to 
Nellie Carter meant only her children. The night before Virginia seceded from the 
Union John, Jr., had an attack of croup and again the night before the Carters had to 
flee from the plantation because the Yankees had captured Surry Court House, just 
ten miles distant. The famous Carter silver had gone with them to Snuithfield, a little 
place in the next county. They had been safe now for six months. 

"What's a gwine ter happen now," pondered Mammy Joe as she rocked before the 
fire. "Dat chile habing de croup is sure a sign we're a gwine ter move. I'se gwine ter 
pack up my chilluns in de morning and take them to Richmond or some whar these 
pesky Y"ankees can't come." 

The next afternoon Smithfield lay dozing in the warm afternoon sun. Not a man, 
woman or child was in sight. True, there weren't any men in the town to be seen but 
grandfathers and cripples, but even these were at home dozing perhaps. The peace 
and calm of a summer afternoon were everywhere apparent. 

Suddenly the stillness was broken by the sound of horses' hoofs and the clear notes 
of a bugle. Smithfield immediately came to life and swarmed upon the courthouse 

A company of Confederate cavalry had just arrived and the news was quickly passed 
from mouth to mouth that a Yankee gunboat was coming up the creek. All eyes turned 
to the creek, which wound in and out among the marshes. A boat was seen in the 

"Oh, Mammy, what must we do? Our house would be the first one to be fired upon 
for you can see it 'way down the creek and we haven't any place really to hide the 

"Now, Miss Nellie, you jes calm yourself. I'se already told Tom ter hitch de mule 
to de carriage and I'se fixed your clothes. Lord knows they ain't many, and packed de 
silver. Jes' go in der house and put on your bonnet and we'll be a leaving. I'se gwine 


to help Tom 'cause he's so ole he can't do much 'thout me. I told him I was coming." 
The old negro woman waddled out to the stable. 

"Tom, whar is you, Tom?" asked Mammy Joe, sticking her head in the stable, "Why 
ain't you heah a hitching up dis mule? Well, I sees you've got the silver in the box 
contraption so I'll jes hitch up," muttered Mammy after she had poked her flat nose 
in every possible place to see that everything would he just right for her "white folks." 

Half an hour passed. No Tom! Where could he be? Mammy racked her brain to 
think where in the world that "good fer nothing ole scamp" could have gone. 

Suddenly she heard voices which sounded as if they might be just outside the stable. 
Her husband's voice rose above the rest. 

"Yes, boss, I'se gwine ter show you whar dat silver is, but it's mighty far from here, 
more'n a mile, down the river." 

"That's not the point. You show me where the Carter silver is and you'll get the 
reward I promised, but if you don't, the Lord help you," answered a voice with a de- 
cided Yankee twang. 

That was all Mammy Joe could hear and then the footsteps died away in the distance. 
For a moment Mammy just stared into space and then, gathering up her skirts, ran 
as fast as her fat self permitted into the house. 

"Oh, Miss Nellie," she called, "we'se a got ter get away from heah mighty quick." 

Children, hats, coats and Miss Nellie tumbled down the steps in a mad jumble. 

"Oh, Mammy, what's happened?" panted Miss Nellie. 

"Jes dem Yankees is a coming mighty quick and we'se got to get away from here. 
Dat good-fer-nothing Tom has taken a fool notion into his head to wander off and we 
can't wait no longer for him." 

"But, Mammy, we can't go and leave Tom." 

"Yes'm we kin. He's my husband but I ain't gwine ter risk my life or yourn or de 
silver for him. Here, baby, put on yo hat and take yo Mammy's hand." Mammy and 
little John led the way, followed by Mrs. Carter and the two girls. 

"Now, Miss Nellie, you and 'Big Sisters' sit on de back seat an' John and me, we'se 
a gwine ter drive — aint we baby?" 

Cheerfully Mammy packed the family in the carriage and then climbed into the 
front seat. "We'se off!" she announced gaily. 

"Mammy, I certainly hate to go off and leave Tom." sighed Miss Nellie. Mammy's 
only answer was to whip the mule. 

Soon the town was far behind. Both Mammy and Mrs. Carter noticed how dark it 
was getting, but neither mentioned the fact. Mammy did not slack the reins for a 

Finally Mrs. Carter called to Mammy, "Don't you think we had better stop and have 
a little something to eat?" 

"Yes'm, I guess so," said Mammy, slowing down the mule. 

"You, children, get out and run up and down a bit," said their mother. 

The scant meal was soon prepared, and all clustered around the one lamp the carriage 
still boasted. 

The sound of horses' hoofs! Mrs. Carter and Mary looked at each other and with- 
out a word grabbed the children and jumped into the carriage. Mammy grabbed the 
reins and whipped the mule unmercifully. Mrs. Carter glanced over her shoulder. It 
was so dark she could not see a thing. She couldn't hear a sound but the beat of her 
mule's hoofs and the squeak of the carriage wheels. 

Suddenly a voice came out of the darkness. 

"Is this carriage, by any chance, Mrs. Carter's?" asked the voice. 

"Yes," faltered Mrs. Carter. 

"Well, I hope I didn't frighten you," replied the voice, the owner of which Mrs. Carter 
could just make out in the darkness. "I am Wells Randolph, lieutenant C. S. A., under 
General Johnson." 



"Thank Coil," lnunmirml the relieved woman. 

"Ive come to tell you," continued the man, that the Yankees have been driven out 
of Smithfield anil you may return home. I also have to inform you, although it grieves 
me very much, that your old colored man died just after we rescued him." 

"Tom dead!" gasped Mrs. Carter. 

"Yes." replied the man "He led the Yankees away from your house so that you 
could escape. His last words were, 'God keep my missis. Use a gwine ter tell ole 
massa I'se done my besV 

"Oh, Mammy, did you know this?" sobbed Mrs. Carter. 

"I reckoned that was what Tom was a-aiming at." 

"But, Mammy, why didn't you tell me?" 

" 'Cause. Miss Nellie, he was jes' a-iloing his duty like ole massa would-a wanted him 
to do." 

The sad little party returned to Smilhiield. The next day old Tom was buried with 
lull honors and Mrs. Carter decided to give her silver to the Confederacy, for somehow 
she felt that was what old "massa" and her husband would have done and it seemed 
to be a memorial to faithful Mammy and Uncle Tom. 

The Carter children, until their death, never forgot to add to their prayers, "God bless 
Mammy Joe and Uncle Tom."

Bears him to waters unknown ; 
There where the while winged sail boats 

Tip the blue waters with snow;

Throw shadows on calm sea below; 
Down where waves dash up, 

Seething wit h foam ; 
Where salt sprays lash up,

f^O-BA Y. us I snt still, tin- bells rang out. 
m, M I heard the falling of unceasing tears — 
The constant dripping of hot blinding tears — 
While red and white and blue flags flapped in 
Sunshine of u duii. too glad for Winter 
And too early for Spring. 

I could hear futile, helpless tears 
Falling, falling, softly and endlessly. 
As the petals of orchids that fell 
From his coffin-. 

I heard the tears of n nation, sorely hurt, 
And through the tears I heard the quick choked sobs 
And whispered prayers that came from hearts 
Sincere in grief. 

Bell Tolls. I heard the heavy tramp of soldier feet. 

The stricken silence of the populace — 

The monotone of padded wheels — rolling — rolling 

I ii ii III in, duel- Hi cud 

To the Cathedral. 

Then, hopeful ns the golden altar candles. 
And white us the Ascension lilies, 
I sun- the banner of the man's ideals 
Flung 'found his sinning flame of soul. 
That, given once to mankind — and to peace — 
Lives on forever, brave anal strong and true. 

Slill. I could heur the futile, helpless tears. 
Falling, falling, softly and endlessly. 
As the petals of orchids that fell 
From his coffin.

BELLS are always ringing. 
There's never any peace. 
It's come here — go there. 
Never your work to cease. 

In the morning there is chapel, 
And still again at night; 

You get lots of religion, 

Yet you never do things right. 

"Where's your chapel cap?" 
"Roll your stockings up !" 

"Stop talking on the hack row!" 
"Why did you practice cut?" 

Yet when at last you're home. 
You begin to miss it all. 

And you're waiting and eager 
To come back next Fall. 

F. Yellott. 

3 J^tgfjt in the parlor 

"V^VHEN the dreary tasks of the day are done. 

\A/ Then the parlor's the place to have some fun, 
'Cause everybody's happy there, everybody's glad. 
You never see a girl whose mad, nor even one the least bit sad. 

The music is always full of "pep," 
It's there you learn the latest step, 
And if you're lucky and lead real well, 
Then your fame's assured — you'll be a belle. 

Here's a mighty good chance to dance with your crush, 
Even tho' it does cause a tell-tale blush, 
And you hope and pray that with her you'll get stuck, 
But alack and alas, there's no such luck. 

Then the dread bell warns you that all good things must end, 
To study hall quickly your way you must wend. 
Every cloud has a silver lining and this one's mighty bright, 
'Cause it's only twenty-four hours until tomorrow night! 

E. T. 



JUST a little subway train 
To take us home and back again 
When we're homesick ; 
Just a little chapel cap. 
That through all, whate'er may hap' 
To us will stick! 

Just a bit o' nat'ral curl 

For the forlorn straight -haired girl 

When it rains; 
Just a little time to spare 
In which to make a little prayer 

'Bout our pains ! 

Just a little piece of string 

To hang the girl who breaks the swing 

In Senior Hall; 
Just a little smile or two 
To cheer us when our skies aren't blue 

For each and all ! 

E. Yaeborough. 
■_< .* •.* 


We burn the midnight oil 
Because of past neglect ; 
And stuff our curly heads 
With pecks of intellect. 

Then for two whole hours 
We search for dates, in vain, 
And hurry lest we may 
Prolong the mental pain. 

When we hear our failing mark 
A melancholic germ 
Creeps in and sticks — till we hear 
That we've passed for the term !

' /^O "ii^ who helps us wlien we'er blue, 
^^ One who is gentle, kind and true, 
To one we love throughout the day, 
Here's ;i tribute to you, Mr. Way. 
Although in chapel line we talk. 
Or from the table we slip a fork. 
Miss Morgan has the same sweet smile, 
She knows advice is well worth while. 
Her praise is always for the best, 
She helps the weak ones meet the test, 
Miss Turner always wants to do 
The thing she thinks is the best for you. 

To one who gives us good advice, 
The one we think sincere and nice, 
'Tis Miss Davis we leave with tears 
And will not forget in future years. 
Miss Sutton is to us a friend, 
She'll be with you thro' thick and thin. 
If we are blue — if we are sad 
We know she'll try to make us glad. 
We know that he believes in ns, 
We know that he receives our trust, 
Mr. Tucker's ever willing to lend 
Time and patience to us, his friend. 

There is one we'll ever adore, 
We learn to love her more and more, 
Miss Houchen is sweet, gentle and good, 
We love her the way every one should. 
Although we've known her just one year, 
It's not Miss Suydam that we fear, 
She always has a ready smile 
And that is what makes life worth while, 
^"o matter in what trouble you are, 
He is always the guiding star, 
Mr. Stone leads us down the road. 
His hand is ready to bear the load. 




love to see her cheerfu 
We love to hear her even pace, 
Never have seen her sad or blue 
'Tis Miss Lee who wants to helj 
The dearest lady of all the rest, 
We always like to serve her best, 
Miss Katy gives us words of praise, 
Especially on our bluest days.

(Tune: "When First I Met Sweet Peggy) 

'%W\ 11 EN first I saw sweet William 

\^S 'Twas when I left the train. 
In one of his hands he took my bag, 
In 'tother he whirled his cane. 
He asked me for a quarter, 
And kindly took my eheek ; 
I was so thankful to him that 
I 'most fell on his neck. 
But there were most a dozen more, 
And cheeks and bags were there galore — 
So he looked once at me. 
Then turned him to flee, 
Leaving me, for the once, the floor. 

When next I saw sweet William 

'Twas in the history room ; 

He wore stuck in his buttonhole 

A red rose full in bloom. 

The very first thing lie asked me 

I really didn't know: 

But he said "That's right," and then be talked 

On the theme an hour or so — 

With a pause every now and thru, 

And then he started off again. 

When his "what" oft is heard 

We just fill in the word — 

Oh, sweet William's the sweetest, of men !

Memories of Hau.owe'en 


Wfjat's in a i£ame 

y^ VERY Bodie thought he'd Suter tine and the Church was crowded. The 
\^| Bell was tolling and it resounded with Chears when the organist started 
in on the wedding march. The bride was a Little thing, and you Wood 
never have known her for the Close she had on. She wore a handsome Green 
dress with a lovely Brown Hood to it. She was one lovely bride and Jim was 
glad to Joyner to him. I alwaj's think of that wedding whenever I hear of any 
new disturbance in the Blank household. You see, Mr. Blank is a Barber. He 
was so jealous of his wife that he tried to Cooper up. She wasn't a very Hardy 
Person and one day she Fell into the well and it was a long time before any one 
could Fisher out. She caught an awful cold and began to Barker head off. 
Her temperature Rose and she N'Everett a tiling. All she'd do was Lyon her 
back, waiting for Jim to come home. Nixon happiness for her, Tilley was right 
there. Her sister Anderson came calling one day. "You Nowell you should be 
up and out by now," she said. But still she had in her Chamberlain. People 
began to think this was Nolan for her, she Lay as still as Stone. She just 
Burroughs into her bed ; they Tucker in and there she stayed. Jim was about 
to make arrangements with the undertaker to Carroway her corpse when she 
seemed to grab out for her life and Pickett up again. Then did she Yellott 
them: "This is no Way to do. DiSpence with the nurse I'll be sick no Moore." 
Now she's going around as pert as a Bird and you'd never know she'd been 
sick. She Justice that foolish.

In hoop-skirt she moved with curtsey low and 

dainty step.

The waltzers moved with stately grace, 

They circled the room with rhythmical pace 

illobern dancing 

But "on with the dance". 

Now it's all a prance — 

Twirling, dipping and swirling. 

It puts her brain in a perfect whirling. 

Features in the Founder's Day Prouram 




I searched my room from bottom to top. 
I've even swept, 'n used the mop. 

I've looked 'n looked with all my might 
But still the thing is lost from sight. 

1 crawled beneath my bed 
But found there only dust instead. 
My closet floor was such a mess 
The chance of finding it grew less. 

I moaned 'n groaned for time was short, 
The darned old thing I had just bought. 
The bell rang 'n I grabbed a book, 
'N gave just one more searching look. 

In study hall I searched again 
And this time it was not in vain. 
For there right by my history map 
I found my darned old chapel cap!

Memoeies of Party Given by Freshmen to Jijniobs 


& Bap at ftatnt iHarp's; 


T-JOOTSTKPS sound upon the stair 
JET * The hell — it must have rung 
Not time for any extras 
Jus' grah your clothes an' run! 
Slip into the dining room 
Then, a second's morning prayer — 
You don't know you're hungry 
Until you're seated there. 

Southern wholesome food 

Greets your hungry eyes. 

And — the dish of a queen. 

Delicious but, less wise. 

You somehow eat it all 

And pass your plate for more; 

At last, the meal is over 

Dash to the post office door. 

Make your bed an' wield your broom. 

Better hide the dust. 

Teachers all inspectin' 

They'll show you that you must. 

Once again the bell you hear 

Off to assembly and church 

Jus' a moment's thoughtfulness 

'Rout homefolks, duty— and such. 

All day long you study hard. 
Just half an hour for lunch. 
When finally school is over, 
All gather in a bunch. 
Learned Seniors and Juniors free. 
Start out midst envious stares; 
Never mind! You'll get your chance, 
Preps an' Sophs there on the stairs. 

Change your dress for dinner 
In middies you must'nt be seen! 
Soon once more you take your place 
In the chapel — calm and serene. 
Only a short evening service. 
Till into the parlor you go 
To dance, an' laugh, an' gayly sing 
Then leaden feet to study hall go. 

As the hour goes swiftly by, 
Many hearts begin to beat — 
"I jus' must tell her good night 
Or I'll not be able to sleep." 
Couples standin' on the stairs 
In the same old-new-old way. 
Thus goes life at Saint Mary's 
Thus we end the day. 





FIGURE fair, divinely tall, 
Strolls leisurely down the hall ; 
My feet with demons seem possessed, 

1 r,-ii t move — I :iin distressed! 

To the roof of ray mouth my tongue cleaves, 
No word can I speak till the fair one leaves; 
My errand 1 completely forget 
My head is swimming — I'm all upset! 
Then I stammer — my hair on its ends — 
"No, not :i crush — just one of my friends!"' 



"Just Friends"

Imagine It! 

Virginia Person has no book 
Which she eyes with earnest look; 
Margaret Bell to detention goes 
Because of her many "I don't knows"; 
Imagine it! 

A. Davenport, so small and thin 
Hears a joke and doesn't grin! 
Mary Powell laughs not at all 
Forgets to practice basketball; 
Imagine it! 

Eugenia Trexler's solitary 
No crushes there to make her merry; 
Helen Bryan has naught to say 
Is meek and shy for one whole day; 
Imagine it! 

Miss Turner into her office goes 
Lies on her desk no red, red rose; 
And Amy Meade goes to bed 
Without a thought of her Ned; 
Imagine it! 

Julia Maurice gets a letter — 
Finds that Harry loves her no better; 
Clare Spence goes no more 
To that room on second floor; 
Imagine it! 

K. Fisher gets no mail today. 
Meets a friend, has naught to say; 
Mildred walks oh! so slow — 
Nothing to do — nowhere to go; 
Imagine it! 

"Tabby-Cat" sees Ellen fair 
Says somethin' mean and does not care; 
Dot Graber sits alone and sad 
No "Amy" there to make her glad; 
Imagine it! 

Emma Lawrence runs so fast— 
An' "breezes in"— a wintry blast! 
Annie Willis flies away 
Shirks all duty for a day; 
Imagine it! 

Anna Boyd has her "vie" 
No careless hand has made it sick! 
You can rely on Mattie King 
She doesn't forget a single thing; 
Imagine it! 

The Seniors make no preparation 
For English N examination; 
They pass exams — reach their goal 
Without the passing of a soul; 
Imagine it!

\A/ And learn to do the proper way. 
We go to classes 'n to "gynin." 
'N obey Miss Morgan's every whim. 

I n chapel line like saints we walk 
She will not even let us talk. 
'N if to breakfast we are late 
With BAM we'll surely have a date. 

When to the lectures we all go 
We must be dressed as white as snow. 
The deadline now we no more trod 
For to a boy perhaps we'd nod. 

On Saturdays in our rooms we keep 
'N learn to dust 'n mop 'n sweep. 
Our rooms must all be clean 'n straight 
Before we can have our beloved date. 

A quiet hour we always dread, 
Nothing to do but go to bed. 
We sleep 'n write to all the boys 
'N get so bored we even play toys. 

But vacation days are here at last 
'N with pleasure we look back on the past. 
We hate to leave our dearest friends, 
But we'll all he back when school begins

&np Pasfeetball <§ame 

'■/^l H E' Mus troop whooping, dancing in 
V-J To a corner of the gym — 
Then, the Sigmas howl, prancing in 
With vigor and with vim. 

While Martha begs the Mu girls 

To yell with all their might 

Edna Jones rocks low and prays 
That Sigma team to fight 

A whistle blows and suddenly 

The gym is quiet as death — 
Miss Sutton and Miss Morgan 

And Miss Katie hold their breath. 

The ball goes up in center 

Then, comes a whirl of ties — 

Harriette flashes away with the bal 
Centre of all eyes. 

Some zigzag Sigma pass-work 

Is a feature of the night. 
Mus and Sigmas seem to be 

In a rough and tumble fight. 

Cameron snatches the slippery ball 
Swaying light and true 

She hurls it up with airy grace 
Score two for the blue! 

Powell gives the hall a slap. 

Harriette gives it a clinch 
Noland throws it easily up 

Into the basket — a cinch. 

So, the game goes on. and we 

Watch on with labored breath 

Till Jackey grabs her marble brow, 
And falls, as if in death, 

But as Miss Katie waves her stick 
"Call time," Eleanor cries 

Clutching at her middy blouse 
And blushing to her eyes. 

And as the game speeds to an end 
We "most forgot the score 

So mindful of the minutes race 

And wishing there were more. 

Of course one team is bound to lose 

And one is bound to win- — 
But winners or losers, they're St. Mary's girls — 

And losing is no sin. 

Indeed, even if you were there 

And did not hear the scoVe — 

You'd never know who lost or won, 
For nobody gets sore. 

So, we won't mention scores at all 
For each St. Mary's girl 

Fine and loyal, staunch and true 
Is the best girl in the world.

Around Amur School 


&J)e Wittt) of Albemarle 

■ *\\R back in the woods in a little cottage on the Albemarle shores bordering the 

^x eastern coast of North Carolina there lives an old, old lady who is known to 

all around as Maid Moore. She lives a simple banker life and is well known as 

a fortune teller. As a result her house is frequented by the many summer people, 

who wish to have their futures unfolded by this famous old lady. 

! had for a long time been anxious to talk to Maid Moore and hear some of 
the interesting stories she told of the earlier hanker life on the Albemarle shores. 
I went to see her, one day, and succeeded in inducing her to tell many interest- 
ing tales of the earlier banker life, but her experience with the witch I enjoyed 
more than any other of her stories. 

There was once in her neighborhood an old woman who believed herself to he 
a witch and who thought she was gifted with the power of conjury. This old 
woman was known by all as Aunt Frankie Matthews, the witch. Now Aunt. 
Frankie was not loved by her people, as Maid was, for she held them, at her wish, 
under her spell bringing sickness and trouble on their children and families, and 
tilling the minds of these people with horrid and evil thoughts. Therefore, they 
thought Aunt Frankie was an evil spirit among them and secretly longed for her 
to be killed. 

Aunt Frankie believed she had but one rival in all her powers of witchcraft 
and that was Maid Moore. For this reason, she hated Maid and planned to con- 
jure her by means of some magic herbs which she gathered from the near-by woods. 

"Frankie, she come to my house and say, 'I go get some herbs for to conjure 
with — you no power to conjure — you not witch — but me — I go get my weeds and 
cast my spell on you.' Then I get mad with that ol' witch and I swear I'd kill 
her. But she go on and get her old weeds and come back again. Now when she 
come back, I go get my shot gun, I did, and I laved off to kill that woman. When 
she saw me wid de gun, she screamed, and I say, 'I'm going kill you' — but she say, 
'You have hard time — I no die easy — I'm witch !' 

"Well, then I shoot my gun and she fall flat, but I watched her and she still 
breathed. Then I get madder and madder at her and I say, 'You will die, you 
witch and conjurer!' and she say, 'But you no kill the cats!' and then she moaned 
and moaned and I shoot my gun again an' when I see her still breathing and hear 
her sighing away, I shoot my gun again. Then I was madder still — after that 
she no breathed and groaned and so I thought her was dead." 

"But weren't you afraid, Maid, that the people would get you for killing her?" 
I interrupted. 

"Humph ! They no care, they want to get rid o' her — they want her to die an' 
I kill her too, the damned ol' witch. And wdien I see her die I say, 'You go to 
hell, you damned witch, and you stay there; and her went, too!" 


"But what did you do with her, Aunt Maid? You couldn't leave her there in 
the door of your house." 

"Naw, some people come get her. They take her to her little house an' then 
they come get me for to shroud her. I no care so I go that night to her house. 

"After we shroud her, then we put her in de coffin and she move a little and 
deu moan. The people, they all scared and scream; but I no scared, an' they say, 
'She no die because she witch !' And then we hear big fuss up on de roof that sound 
like scratching and they all scream and were scared nigh to death. But, humph ! 
I no scared and I just watch. Pretty soon the cats come through the window, 
nine of 'em, one right after de other and all black as the night outside. Well, 
they walk round an' round Aunt Frankie's coffin and all the time her moan an' 
moan and then they go inside. Well, Aunt Frankie then just left — we no see 
her any more — her disappear and then the cats began to shriek. The people all 
cry, 'Kill 'em, kill 'em,' but I say, 'No !' Then the cats just walk out like they 
came, one by one and all de time shrieking and hissing. 

" 'N so Frankie die, and now my people live happy. They no 'fraid of witches 
and they no have anybody to bring sickness and trouble on them. I kill Frankie 
Matthews — because she witch and she try to conjure me and my people!" 

Edna Jones Nixon. 


Here's to Her — 

Tall and slender 
but — not fair, 

horn-rimmed glasses 

'n dark brown hair. 

Eyes that right straight 
thru you cut 

'n make you feel 

like a perfect Nut. 
Her face is stern 

but then she smiles 
'n she even tries 

to change the styles. 
She restricts you 
for a long, long year 
'n then she up 
'n calls you "dear." 
She's always here, 
'n always there 
'n can catch you 
almost anywhere. 
She is stern 
'n she is strict 
But to Miss Morgan 

You bet WE'LL STICK.

There's not a date lie doesn't know 
Of all his facts he's sure — 

He knows both French and Latin 
And oh, a great deal more. 

I wonder if any one else 

Knows all there is to be known 

Of History M and History IS T — 
Like the one and only, Mr. Stone? 

He can easily make you wish 

The earth would swallow you whole 

If by chance you might forget — 
One of the "Utilities of Coal." 

He can often catch you up — 
With his eternal what's and why's. 

He can make you forget 

What's right before you eyes. 

But even with all that — 

There's none in all this world — 

Can take his place with us — 

At whom his "what's"' are hurled.

From the opposite end of the craft she 
gazed at him calmly. Then she said: 

"As a matter of common sense, realizing 
that we are in this boat, on water more 
than fifty feet deep, and if you were go- 
ing to act as you should act if I ac- 
cepted ynu, we would be capsized, I will 
decline your proposal at this moment — 
but, George, row as fast as. you can to the 
shore and ask me again."

A Willing Sacrifice — "Mamma," said 
little Elsie, "I do wish I had some money 
to give you for the poor children.'' 

Her mother, wishing to teach her the 
lesson of self-sacrifice, said: "Very well, 
dear; if you would like to go without sugar 
for si week I'll give you the money in- 
stead., and then you will have some." 

The little one considered solemnly for 
a moment and then said: "Must it be 
sugar, mamma?"" 

"Why, no, darl i ng T not necessaril y. 
What would you like to do without?" 
"Soap, mamma." was Elsie's answer.
